Drawing references available in schedules

Not applicable
I want to be able to automatically list details from the view map/layout book as they relate to the head detail, jamb detail and sill detail in my door and window schedule. These are all either separate smart text placed to the sheet and laid over the schedule or manually coordinated text. Either way I am coordinating text position or text content, not parametric and not clean!

I hate that every so often I think, "maybe now there is a way around having to manually coordinate H/J/S detail references in a Door Schedule," and I come here and search only to find the same result. One of my Users spent a good portion of his weekend dorking around with the DS in a large Project because the Layout containing the Schedule got shifted in the set to a different number. He wasn't ONLY fixing H/J/S references; someone else had also done a bunch of eyedropper / syringe work that had wrecked a bunch of rated door / door numbers, etc.

I even tried setting the H/J/S Detail as Autotext Reference, using that Autotext in a Text box, and copying / pasting it into the Schedule... Of course it pasted in as plain text. Otherwise this whole forum probably would have heard about it.

Gets my vote. We should be able to use all autotext and project settings and more, anywhere.

Reminds me a little of 2004:


This gets my vote too. Unless...don't suppose anyone has found a way to get this to work yet?
